One of 3 Rhetus species, this one is found at lower elevations than Rethus dysonii. The males are usually seen imbibing minerals along the sides of ditches and small streams. They are often quite placid when doing this, and allow one to get quite close. They are seen more frequently in cloudy conditions.
